about

Occasionally an album comes out of nowhere and spears the heart of a music lover. Once in a very occasional while on first listen you just know you will love and cherish an album for the rest of your days. "Vreme ispred nas" by PRKOS DRUMSKI ***** (BRLOG RECORDS ) is such an album for me.

Prkos Drumski is a fellowship of musicians from Novi Sad in the north of Serbia. They are a perfect example of why I love this art more than anything and why so much of my budget goes on shiny discs from unknown corners of Europe. I played the album three times in a row on first listen and was utterly blown away by an uncluttered, pure music of absolute simplicity.

Prkos Drumski's music is the sound of an aching melancholy suspended on fragile threads of delicate splendour and Vreme ispred nas is an album on which they search their very hearts and souls for meaning while attempting to capture the elusive butterfly of beauty. Gently plucked acoustic guitars are complemented by restrained piano, flute and percussion and little else. Lonely vocals soar off into the ether to be joined there by warm, friendly harmonies that urge the lead on to ever-elevated heights of expression.

Essentially, all the songs come from a similar, down-tempo, melancholic place but different vocalists take lead duties and emphasise the individuality of each piece. There's a pastoral feel to the music, as if Mother Nature and the band wrote and arranged all the songs outdoors on a fine summer's evening as the light faded. I would love to hear this music in such a setting. It would be perfect.

Track Name: Godine neke daleke
Pišem ti male pesme da duže ostaneš mala.
Tajna se otkriti ne sme da si ih davno već znala.
Iste si reči neke u snu slušala davnom,
godine neke daleke u kojima rasla si sa mnom...
A ja sam morima brodio,
zvezda me moja vodila...
Svud te sa sobom vodio
još dok se nisi ni rodila.
Track Name: Blagoslov
Čuva nas nebo,
gleda stari bog
na maleni grad.

Sa tamne krošnje
poletela su krila,
put srebrnog svoda
vinula se u noć.

Bela krila
nad dušama našim
što u zagrljaju toplom
čuvale su mir.

I tiho sasvim
stegnuli smo ruke
jedno oko drugog
da ne mine
plam.

Da svetovi naši
u jedan stope se,
dok bog stari gleda
na maleni grad.
Track Name: Tužna ljubavna pesma
Jedino moj će život doista umreti
za mene jednom.
Jedino trava zna ukus zemlje.
Jedino krv moja čezne doista
za mojim srcem
dok ga napušta.

Vazduh je visok,
ti si visoka,
visoka je tuga moja.
Tuga moja čuje
još nerođene pse
koji laju na ljude
još nerođene.

Dolazi vreme da umiru konji,
dolazi vreme da ostare mašine,
dolazi vreme kada pada hladna kiša
i sve žene imaju tvoju glavu
i nose tvoje haljine...
Dolazi neka velika bela ptica
da snese mesec na nebo
i sve žene imaju tvoju glavu
i nose tvoje haljine...
Track Name: More
More, čuješ li more...
Brodovi smjeli iz mirne luke plove hrabro vjetru u ruke,
jedra bijela ponosno šire, gdje zraci sunca oluje mire.
More, čuješ li more...
Kroz bure strašne vjera ih vodi, gdje dusi sveti hode po vodi,
zvijezda plava u jutra nova tamo gdje čeka vedra zora.
More, čuješ li more...
More, čuješ li more...
Track Name: Vreme ispred nas
Jedan topli pogled
budi ljubav,
čuva strah.

I jedan dodir nade
daje snagu,
daje spas,
kad jutrom tvoje ruke
nose sunce,
nose glas
da vera topi boje
u vreme ispred nas.

Budi ljubav.
